KCRW Presents: James BlakeKCRW

A multi-talented 24-year-old from the U.K., James Blake is most widely known for his production skills. But when he performed for a small audience at the Berkeley Street Studio for KCRW, it was his voice and piano that really stood out. Blake combines the buzzy beats and dramatic anticipation of electronic production with soothing vocals and melodies, and the result is a one-of-a-kind experience.
